Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty to Federal Gun Charge

Lil Wayne has entered a guilty plea in his federal weapons case.

The 38-year-old rapper appeared in a virtual court hearing on Friday (December 11) in Miami, Fla. where he pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a firearm as a formerly convicted felon, Rap-Up reports.

The charge came from a December 2019 incident where federal agents searched Wayne‘s plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, where he was a passenger on that plane, which made a stop in Florida on its way to California.

Upon the search, federal agents discovered the .45-caliber handgun in Wayne’s luggage.

As a convicted felon, Wayne was not supposed to be in possession of a weapon. Wayne was convicted of a felony gun charge in New York back in 2009. He now faces up to 10 years in prison.

Lil Wayne‘s sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 28, 2021.

He and his ex also just split, possibly because of his political endorsement.
